More about trekking and escape…

Sometimes I think I might be losing a sense of belonging to a particular place, home, people… These are the things that keep us usually safe and happy. Happy? Maybe to a certain extent. But happiness is such an abstract word…  I am not sure about the state of happiness in my life but I feel a certain level of adventure.   The sense of adventure drives me in my daily life – inspires and motivates me, i.e. keeps me “alive”…

Trekking is an easy way to experience a kind of adventure…  It is a temporary escape from life’s craziness… You can plan a big escape– climb Kilimanjaro or Everest (if you can afford…) or just go trekking…

I went trekking last Sunday to the mountainous area by the lake Albano (about one hour away from Rome).  It was a rainy day but we were able to see some beautiful views and get some exercise (10 hours of trekking…).

It’s getting cold in Rome and I am dreaming of some warm place, escape…

My next destination is Jordon and I am leaving in two days! I will spend few days there — first  the Dead Sea and then in Petra — the giant red mountains and vast mausoleums of a departed race  –  one of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man…   Not a bad place to celebrate my birthday…
